Need Help!!!

I recently purchased an 05 v6 mustang. When I turn the lights on, they only have 10 ft of visibility! Does anyone else have this problem and if so how do you/did you fix it?

How does it look with your high beams on??? Do the lights look dim in person??

You possibly just need to adjust the lights more up. That what I've done to mine.

Ha. That's what they said about mine also. It's to they're specs. So I just did it myself and now I can see way better. They're should be a Allen head bolt behind the light or a phlips screw bolt. Dunno witch one on yours.

Glad I'm not the only one. I was like I'll wait for the bulb to die before I replace them, but the visibility is just horrible. I'll try and adjust them thanks for the suggestion.

The rattling in or near the center consle is probably one of 3 things:
1. The E-brake lightly press your hand against the side hopefully that stops it.

2. The piece between the shifter and the A/C buttons rattles sometimes.

3. check is the seat belt retainers like you are going to do the E-brake.

4. If that still doesn't stop check the passenger seat and good luck.

These things have squeaks and rattles like I've never heard before.

But Mechanically they are great cars not one serious issue with my 06.

The noise is inside of the dash. It sounds like a wire hitting or something.

I haven't heard that one yet. If you have some basic mechinical experience it's not hard to remove the dash just time consuming.

I took it in and they said they fixed it. It was fine for a week or so but then it started rattling again
